Re: TOBACCO

Back when they put the no smoking measure on the ballot I impulsively did something I don't believe in. I voted for the ban. I still have mixed feelings about it but man, it is so nice to go to restaurants and bars and not have to deal with the smoke. My wife used to smoke, and I'm not making this u...

Re: Bash & Hide

I agree with the others. If you asked me a year ago about this kind of thing I'd have said just let everybody have at it. But I've been on a couple of unmoderated boards and it wasn't long before I got off of them, never to go back.

Re: GM ZZ383 crate motor

I have one on a 14' deckover. I turn a 3 blade 78" S Sensenich set on the two mark through a 2.68 Stinger. It does a good job. I go anywhere I want but like anyone else I could use another hundred horsepower.

Re: Best gear ratio for Towing

Prolly going to get flamed for this but you don't absolutely **have** to regear the front at the same time as the rear. Just know that you don't want to engage 4wd unless you really need it. I'm just saying that if finances are an issue you could go ahead and regear the rear and then wait awhile on ...

Re: Dry Ground Prop for 455DD

You aren't going to be able to run that boat dry with that engine. You quote approx 330 hp but that number would be at around 4800-5200 rpm. At 2800 it may not even be making 200 hp.

You're going to have to get a gearbox.

Thanks Olf. I was lucky enough to see the look on his face when he saw his restored boat. I got to meet you (and I do remember) and I got to watch Cowboy take the stage and do the real talk.

Sorry but that's bs. 300 hp at the prop hub is 300 hp - regardless of what's in front of the prop hub.

Re: Finally Bought a boat

Is it deckover? No matter, look out for your backwash and be careful not to dip a corner making a sharp turn at low speed.

Unless you saw it, you wouldn't believe how fast an airboat can sink.
